    • To perform store duplication, you must have more than two stores under the same SHOPLINE account.
    • To copy data from or to a store, ensure you have the necessary store duplication permissions. Contact the Administrator or Store Manager to request these permissions if needed.
  1. Click Duplicate store in the upper right corner.

    Note: For enhanced duplication efficiency, SHOPLINE recommends copying one store at a time. Selecting too many stores may lead to longer copying time and increased waiting period.

    3.3 Select copy data types: Choose the data types (e.g., products, themes, store settings) that you want to copy to the selected store(s).
